A Question Asked –
A question not answered. It is not about Jesus. It is about the Lamb. It is not about the second coming. It is about the first coming. It is all about preparing the way. A job for John the Baptist who bare record. John the Apostle added Jesus and the churches. The second John. Who is the third?
A Reason to Explain –
A need to understand what is written. From Augustine:
What then, Brothers, shall we keep silence?
Why then read it if only to keep silence about it?
why hear it if it is not to be explained?
why explain it if it is not to be understood?”
A Reason for the Apocalypse –
A revelation of what must shortly come to pass. Why? To prepare the way for the first coming. The Lamb of God. Not the second coming. Jesus. Lamb is mentioned 27 times. Jesus is mentioned only 12 times. John the Baptist prepared the way for the Lamb of God. He didn’t know it was Jesus.
A Reason to Live
A meaning for life. A test of wills. Don’t bury your talent. Learn what you can. Teach what you can. You will need help. Ask for it. Seek the truth. You will find it. Knock and it will be open unto you. The Truth will not only set you free, It will make you happy. It will help you pass the final test. We are being tested. You may not find that word in your bible.
A Home for Doubt
A necessary explanation for what we experience. We have to make sense of it. To ignore it is to deny reality. To deny objectivity. Call it speculation, conjecture, or whatever but please accept the fact that there must be a reason, a purpose, a meaning, etc.
A reason to believe. Be not afraid. The opium of the people, religion, was the biggest threat to the vision Marx had for the future. Cling to your bible and gun. Faith, the opposite of fear, gives us a reason to believe in something that is worth fighting for. Vote for life.
A Minimum Requirement
A time to listen if you have an ear. What can you do? Just show up and listen. Let the Spirit move you. We all have a job to do. Find a quiet place and listen. There is a reason, a purpose, and a meaning. It is knowable. It will be revealed to you. You have to believe that and hope for understanding. The wise shall understand.
A Safe Place For Those Who Cannot Argue
A place for formation of posterity where social justice replaces religion and critical thinking. Changing a religious university into a secular one only takes time. “People generally quarrel because they cannot argue.” A good argument requires reason, logic, and common sense. Think about that. Thinking is critical.
A Catholic Court
A defense of life. A Catholic on the court is no accident. Faith is reasonable. In fact without faith there is no reason. Without reason you can’t argue. If you can’t argue, you must restrict the speech of those who can. Somehow universities became a safe place for those who can’t argue. Even the Catholic ones.
A Light Shines In The Darkness
A free speech leads to freedom. Reason and logic reveal the truth. Does it make sense? A test for the truth. Who can you believe? Those who respect life. The only test you need. Life is good. A truth. Start there. The truth will set you free.
